Aero Research has released their fourth photo reference CD, this covering a variety of warbirds from a wide range of dates. This title wasn't originally on their release list, but they've clearly acquired quite an impressive collection to publish.

Note: I've received a number of requests to post a complete image of one of these CDs online, you can access that here.

Once again I used my image browser to scan through the aircraft on the disc and I was quite impressed with the selection of aircraft. In this release, there are an impressive number of aircraft that I don't believe are still flying today. When you see the subjects, you'll be amazed at the variety of warbirds that were around a few decades ago. These include one or more of:

  • A6M Zero (still around!)
  • AF-2 Guardian
  • B-25 Mitchell
  • C-121 Constellation
  • C-125 (now at Pima Air Museum)
  • C-1A
  • CH-37
  • Draken (Mach Two Flight Services)
  • F-100D (ex-Turkish AF)
  • F-104 'Red Baron' (lost during record attempt)
  • F-4C (Flight Systems)
  • F-8K Crusader
  • F4F Wildcat
  • F4U Corsair
  • F6F Hellcat
  • F7F Tigercat
  • F8F Bearcat
  • F9F-2 Panther
  • FJ-4 Fury
  • HA-1112
  • HU-16 Albatross
  • Hunter
  • MiG-15
  • MiG-17
  • MiG-21
  • N2S Stearman
  • and MANY more

For the modeler, you'll see lots of good details and color information for replicating warbirds for a change of pace. For the enthusiast and modeler alike, you can browse through a nice variety of high-resolution images of some very nice aircraft!

According to the publisher, future subjects include: USN/USMC A-4 Skyhawks, USAF F-4 Phantoms, Reno Unlimiteds 1964-1974, Thud: F-105 Thunderchiefs, and F-8 Crusaders Part 1. Each title will be released in two-month intervals.

This is a nice selection of imagery that you won't find available in such clarity and size. This title is recommended!

You can purchase this reference or any of their other photo CDs directly from their website or via email

My sincere thanks to Aero Research for this review sample!
